Lord Let Me Recieve My Sight
TOC | Previous | Next

LORD, Let me receive my sight

In Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. He heard Jesus passing by and cried out saying, “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me!”. “The Lord asked what he could do for him. The beggar replied, “Lord, let me receive my sight!”. Thereupon the Lord Jesus healed him of his blindness.

The eye is one of the most important organs. The Lord in His sermon on the Mount said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light; but if your eye is not sound, your whole body will be of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” (Mt 6:22—23). Satan has no delight in men’s salvation. He will blind the minds of the people to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ so that they will not be able to accept the truth and to obtain eternal life (2 Cor 4:3—4). The Jews whose minds were blinded by the devil were no better than the blind person in Jericho. They were unable to accept the salvation of the Lord. They persecuted the Lord. Therefore the Lord said, “Nor judgement I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may become blind” (Jn ). The Lord also upbraided the Jews for not believing John the Baptist, saying, “Why then did you go out? To see a man clothed in a soil raiment? Behold, those who wear soft raiment are in the kings’ houses. Why then did you go out? to see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet” (Mt- 11:8—9). What do you come to see when you go to church? Scholars? Philosophers? They are in the universities. So you come to church for truth and salvation? Yes, true tabernacle of God set up not by man but by God (Heb 8:2; Rev 21:3).
